Originating from South America, the Guzmania Bromeliads are tropical houseplants that are easy to grow and care for. Towering above its arching bright-green foliage, Yellow Guzmania Bromeliad produces a yellow bloom that can last for months. An attractive plant even when not in flower, it’s a perfect plant for growing in most situations and to give as a gift.
Best Locations For Growing Yellow Guzmania Bromeliad
When not in flower, this bromeliad is relatively low growing and is ideal for placing on a table or a desk. However, when in bloom it can reach two feet tall so will need enough headroom. As a non-toxic plant, it could be grown in any room,
Yellow Guzmania Bromeliad Sunlight Requirements
Where possible, the Yellow Guzmania Bromeliad prefers to be grown in bright and natural light. Near an east- or west-facing window tends to be perfect for this plant; just avoid any strong direct sunlight which can burn the foliage.
Yellow Guzmania Bromeliad Care
This plant grows well within a temperature range of 60°F to 80°F and with high humidity levels. Misting the plant regularly or placing it on a wet pebble tray can help mimic its native environment. Once flowered, the stem should be cut away at the base with a sanitized and sharp knife, which will hopefully encourage new offsets to grow and propagate from.
Watering Yellow Guzmania Bromeliad
The Yellow Guzmania Bromeliad is best watered with harvested rainwater or distilled water. Add the water to its central cup or reservoir so it is around one-quarter full. This reservoir can be allowed to dry out from time to time as long as it is for no longer than a few days at a time. If the soil appears soggy or wet, then watering can be reduced to avoid any potential root rot. Over a few weeks, the central cup’s water can stagnate, which can be prevented by refreshing the water every month.
Feeding Yellow Guzmania Bromeliad
Feeding Yellow Guzmania Bromeliad is not completely necessary, but to give the plant a boost and to encourage flowering, a balanced houseplant fertilizer diluted to half strength, can be applied every 4 to 6 weeks from spring until the fall.
